Relaxing after yesterday. We got rid of so much crap in the garage it looks great...hope it stays that way.
I thought I would use this a lot when I got my Android HU, especially due to the huge screen. I think I used it twice, and it was severely disappointing. Mine is Android 8.0, so hopefully they improved that function in 10, but the apps had to be side by side, which messed up the screen proportions of the app. Stuff was cut off, or required scrolling, just wasn't worth it.the ability to have two apps on screen at the same time.
Google and youtube it. Get the ready mix stuff and rent a mixerWork.
Got a rough estimate on a new concrete driveway and extension. "Only" around $10-11k. Lol uhhhh no. The actual concrere materials delivery cost would only be a quarter of that, so if I knew what I was doing and had help it would be more tempting, aside from having to figure out how to rip out old asphalt and dispose of it.
Or I could get a truck to simply deliver it and pour it when I spread etc. Would be like 1/4 the cost...Google and youtube it. Get the ready mix stuff and rent a mixer
Just curious and I'm not sure how level the ground is in that area where the gate swings open but wouldn't also useing a caster and wheel on the end of gate help with the tension.First note, Moose, that Caprice sounds bloody awesome!!!
Second note, finished installing some gates today. Two 12', one 8' and two 4'. Went pretty well. We picked up a new cordless drill so turning the spade bit actually went well. All that's left is mounting a small block to support the swinging end when closed as it takes up some of the stress on the post. Then we will make some diagonal tension wires on the braces.

I was thinking that too, but not sure how much of a pain that would be when there's snow on the ground.Just curious and I'm not sure how level the ground is in that area where the gate swings open but wouldn't also useing a caster and wheel on the end of gate help with the tension.
Those are not welds! What did your $1600 cover? His intro to welding course?Installed the little plastic pieces I received last week on the rear of the console and replaced the armrest pad.

Also took some pics of the shoddy work the exhaust shop did. Google review incoming.
Some ugly welds

One of his ugly welds on the left and an original weld on the right.

The hanger on the left if cockeyed and I'm gonna have a hard time fixing it because he decided to weld the clamp with the hanger to the pipe.

Ain't that the truth.Work. Dreamed of buying a 2013 Silverado crew cab to replace my 07 extended cab in a year or two. I think I can swing the $ assuming no major market bumps. Also dreamed of a shed, nicer driveway, other things... too many projects not enough $ lol.
Actually came to $1300CAD. They are fugly. I do better welds using my old stick welder, albeit on regular steel. I wanted to basically make this into a quasi show car. Don't know how I'm gonna fix this crap.Those are not welds! What did your $1600 cover? His intro to welding course?
Can't you go submersible pump ? assuming the source is a well.Just went up to check it out and get the water going however the pump wouldn't prime. BIL said that it could be the insert in the pump that froze and broke. Happens almost every year. First time I'm doing it but I am familiar with these kinds of pumps. Either we replace it with a better pump or we should prevent its damage with some plumbing anti-freeze.
2WD Z71 with tow mirrorsWas thinking 13 because 2 gens old is a lot cheaper, my mods would almost all transfer over (and give me excuse to finish the retro I never finished). But if you have a 14 crew cab, 4x4, and a good price I could afford then maybe so. At least I'd know it would be rust free!
I could have done better with an acetylene torch!Actually came to $1300CAD. They are fugly. I do better welds using my old stick welder, albeit on regular steel. I wanted to basically make this into a quasi show car. Don't know how I'm gonna fix this crap.
It's from a lake so using a shallow well pump. Have thought of going to a jet pump. I'll see what the BIL can do with it.Can't you go submersible pump ? assuming the source is a well.
Unfortunately it was for 5 cubic yards of mulch and 1 cubic yard of top soil.Yeah, I just spent some money too on new custom floor mats for the Caprice. This afternoon, have to clean the carb on the lawn tractor and then replace some belt idler wheels on the mower deck. If any time left, will mow the lawn.
